In order to start the freediving course you have to demonstrate basic water skills and be generally comfortable in the water. You need to be able to swim 200-metres/yards and/or 300-metres/yards using a mask, fins and snorkel without stopping. There is no time limit for this, and you may use any swimming strokes you want.
In addition to that all student divers complete a medical history form that aims to check if you have any medical conditions that could be a problem while freediving. If none of these apply, sign the form and you’re ready to start.

Just like many other sports, freediving is very safe, if practiced correctly. During a freediving course you will learn the proper breathing techniques, relaxation methods and safety measures to make you a better and more comfortable freediver. Any accidents that occur are usually due to lack of proper training and education.
It is true, that scuba diving is a rather equipment intensive activity that can involve a huge amount of different accessories and add-ons. However, the beginner diver generally needs only 7 basic pieces of gear. Here is the list arranged in our suggested order of purchase:
You can read more about each piece of equipment in our Knowledge Base.
Freediving is certainly much less equipment intensive than scuba diving, for example.All you need to start freediving is a low volume mask, a really simple snorkel, long and flexible fins, a wetsuit and a weight system. You can also consider purchasing some accessories, such as a marker buoy, a safety lanyard and a knife.
Freediving is essentially a form of diving, when a diver relies on a single breath of air rather than on a breathing apparatus, such as used in scuba diving. The term freediving can, however, be associated with a variety of underwater activities ranging from competitive breath-hold diving to simple shallow dives around reefs and rocks. The activity that attracts the most public attention is the extreme sport of competitive apnea in which competitors attempt to attain great depths, times, or distances on a single breath.
Remember, even though freediving may seem like a simple activity that anyone can do, it is important to take a course to ensure the diver’s safety.
